Best Car Tyres In India

The River Runs Through - Chandra River, Batal, Himachal Pradesh, India - 19.06.09
Shot with: Olympus u700, S700
To reach my destination Chandra Taal I had to depart Shoja at 04:00 hrs. The guys at the resort (Banjara Camps) were supposed to give me a wake up call at 03:00 hrs. Around 02:00 hrs, I saw the time and snuggled back to sleep. When there was a knock at the door it was 03.45 hrs! I broke my previous records; got ready and raced up 136 steps (my gym instructor would have been quite proud)!
The drive via Aut, Kullu and Manali was event free except that my driver tried to claim my breakfast box too (along with his own), took a wrong turn and blamed me for not carrying along the road map (which in the rush I had left behind). I retaliated by giving a little demo of my dragon act and then curled up at the back seat to take a power nap!
At Solang Nala (120kms from Shoja, at an altitude of 2 479 m/8135 ft.), I was to switch cars (Innova to a Mahindra pickup truck), also a new driver (doubling up as a guide), a cook and porter were to join. I would be traveling about 245 kms, which was no doubt tiring but I was too excited to mind.
The person who made all the arrangements (from Solang Nala onwards) assured me that this was one of the most botched up itinerary he had come across in many years! Hearing this, the permanent expression that I wear – a frown, deepened.
My ordeal started as soon as I stepped inside the vehicle, the body odor of the trio made me almost pass out! I alternatively gritted my teeth and bit my lips and chanted to myself ‘all for the sake of Chandra Taal’!
‘Chandra Taal’ or ‘The Moon Lake’ in the district of Lahaul & Spiti, is situated at an altitude of about 4,300m/14,000ft. The name of the lake originates from its crescent shape.
During the day, the lake appears prussian blue in color, and a greenish tinge appears towards the evening. The lake is situated on a plateau, Samudra Tapu overlooking the Chandra River, which originates from a glacier near Bara-lacha-la (also known as Bara-lacha Pass, at 4890 m. /16,040 ft.)
Traffic at Rothang Pass was at it’s horrendous best with road repair work on, usual tourist gathering and an oil tanker breakdown. ‘Rothang’ meaning a pile or corpses in Persian is at an altitude of 3978 m / 13,051 ft. is a high mountain pass some 51 km long from Manali, that connects the Kullu Valley with the Lahul and Spiti valleys of Himachal Pradesh, India. The pass is open from May - November, having a reputation for dangerous crossing because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards.
By lunchtime we reached Chhatru, a small halt station at an altitude of 11450ft. here one can find 3-4 shanty shop cum restaurants. Some even provide very basic night stays.
Our plan was to reach the lake by 16:00 hrs and put up our tent. I was supposed to shoot during sunset and sunrise (when the lake is at it's photographic best ) the following morning before returning to Shoja.
Though repeated assurance and information from various sources had told me that there was virtually no snowfall this year, I found the roads in a condition worse than previous. On the either side, (in places) there was about 25-30 ft. high snow deposits. As they melted in the hot sun, the roads got wet, slippery and muddy. I was not so resentful with the switch of cars anymore.
About 7-8 kms ahead of the lake there was a massive crater on the road, result of some recent boulder fall. It would be impossible for the truck to proceed. They decided to put up the tents on the bank of Chandra River and trekking seemed the only option…
Red Pyramid - Dashur
The Pyramid at Dashur is the first successful pyramid ever built. and the best part is that it is smack in the desert and there are hardly any tourists around.
I walked in to this pyramid and found out that I was the only one inside the pyramid, went in to the burial chamers and looked around, it was dark and I had to use flash from camera to figure out where I was. I was super thrilled to be alone inside a pyramid.
the long climb out was trecherous, I could not walk properly for the next couple of days.
got back in to the tazi and was going to the bent pyramid, when my driver for reasons I could not imagine, lost his way, and got the car stuck in the desert sand, we tried several thing to take the car out, we dug, found several stones, for the tire to grip on, I even tried lifting the car. Nothing worked. it was evening and the no one was in sight, we decided to walk back to a police booth we saw on the way, after a while we could see the booth, but it seemed like a long walk. I waved like a mad man hoping the policemen there could see me, and they did. I thought I'll have to cough up more money to get the police men to help me, five strong policemen came, and they removed the floor sheets in the car made a road out of it and got the car back to the dirt road, it was amazing, and they left. I was impressed.
even though I was in trouble for a while I think I liked it, I thought its going to be a nice story. and it is.
